Detroit Lions PK Nate Freese misfired on a pair of field goal attempts in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers. He was able to tack on one extra point. Head coach Jim Caldwell said Sunday, Sept. 14, that he "won't make any rash decisions" on whether to keep Freese as the kicker after the misses.
Fantasy Tip: Pardon the pun, but Freese might be skating on thin ice after the two misses. Avoid him for fantasy purposes until he starts to show some consistency.

Detroit Lions PK Nate Freese's experience kicking outside and in cold weather at Boston College has Lions general manager Martin Mayhew confident he can succeed in the NFC North.
Fantasy Tip: Freese is an accurate kicker with little in the way of quality competition, a high-octane offense, and favorable home conditions. The offseason coaching changes should also provide more field goal opportunities than in recent seasons.
